- Thermalling techniques for different conditions
- Meteo and reading the sky
- How to predict a good XC day
- Decision making – which line to choose to keep your gained altitude, where to search your next thermal
- Efficiency – Optimizing your flying time
- Set-up of your paragliding gear
The Apennine mountains are known to be a good school for cross country flying. Our base camp will be in Poggio Bustone because of it’s reliable weather conditions and epic flights over the ‘Wild Heart of Italy’. The site offers mountain or flatland flying, with many landing options in the valley. Besides the flying we want to offer you a great time with other pilots, enjoying the local Italian food and culture.
The day will start with a meteo briefing, flight planning and analyze of the orography.
During the flight you get guidance in the air over the radio so you can relax and focus on the flying.
After the flight we do a de-briefing and an analysis of your flight.
The course will run from Monday to Friday. Arrival date is latest on Sunday 24th of May.
We will be staying in an agriturismo in the Valley of Rieti, close by the landing field.
The guidance can be in Italian, English, Spanish, Greek or French.
